Thank you to my SDSU students who have chosen to raise money for San Diego Rescue Mission‘s new Children’s Center – benefiting homeless preschool aged children. Here’s a bit more about the students + their marketing project.
The following post was contributed by Allison Steckler.
In their senior year at San Diego State University, three students aim to raise $16,000 for a playground at the San Diego Rescue Mission’s Children Center. Allison Steckler, April Ball, and Kaitlyn Mehrwerth volunteered to help the San Diego Rescue Mission for their Internet Marketing course’s final project at SDSU.
The three students have created a Go Fund Me page, and with help from the San Diego community, the San Diego Rescue Mission can build a playground for the homeless children where they are encouraged to grow, laugh and play while their mothers look for jobs and get the help they need to rebuild their lives. The $16,000 will go directly to building a playground equipped with basketball hoops, games, tricycles, climbing structures, a garden center, a sandbox and more!
This project interested Allison, April, and Kaitlyn because they understand the importance of a safe and comforting preschool environment and the significance of a child’s first five years of life. Each of the girls is able to recall their own preschool memories and want to help provide the homeless youth of San Diego the same opportunity. Though their class ends in December, they hope that their work in fundraising for the San Diego Rescue Mission’s Children’s Center will help the organization create a lasting environment for the homeless children of San Diego, which can only be achieved with the help from the San Diego community.
